Potential GOP presidential candidate Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) told CNN in a “Snapchat interview” on Tuesday he had a warning for any unmanned drones that might fly over his house.
“I’ve got a shotgun,” he said.
Paul was responding to a question that came a day after an off-duty intelligence officer who reportedly had been drinking accidentally crashed a small drone onto the White House lawn.
The senator was asked whether unmanned aerial vehicles should be banned.
“Drones should only be used according to the Constitution,” he said, adding: “But if they fly over my house, they better beware.”
CNN billed the exchange as a “historic Snapchat interview” and described Paul as the first U.S. lawmaker to be interviewed through the social app.
